Job Search

Those who have been following my blog for the last month or so know that I am looking for work.

I start a temp job tomorrow. It is what it is, but I am grateful for the opportunity.

I have noticed two things while on this job search.

The first is that there are an incredible amount of job and job search engines posted online. Some which are questionable.

The second is that some companies required the job hunter to jump through hoops just to apply. First there is the job search engine. Then there is the link to the company website, for which a user name and password must be created. Then the resume is uploaded, but the information from the resume has still be filled out or edited. And then finally, before the application is complete, there are questions about the applicants sex, race and whether or not they are disabled or a veteran.

I understand why the application process is the way it is, but it’s frustrating.

But at the end of the day, it has to be done. There is one only way to get a job and that is make a job of finding a job.

  1. Focus on LinkedIn and indeed, I have personally used them in my job searching and the organization I work for (10,000+ employees) posts all of our positions on both of those sites. I write a job seeker and career advice blog, check it out @ http://www.interviewknowledge.com
